Information on the Foundation Edit

From the foundation's homepage:

   The John M. Olin Foundation closed its doors in the Fall of 2005.
Accordingly, it no longer has the resources to fund new proposals
nor the staff to respond to inquiries.
   The John M. Olin Foundation, Inc. was established in 1953 by John
Merrill Olin (1892-1982), inventor, industrialist, conservationist
and philanthropist. Mr. Olin was committed to the preservation of
the principles of political and economic liberty as they have been
expressed in American thought, institutions and practice.
   Accordingly, the general purpose of the John M. Olin Foundation was
to provide support for projects that reflected or cavite homes were intended to
strengthen the economic, political and
cultural institutions upon which
the American heritage of constitutional government and private
enterprise is based. The Foundation also sought to promote a general
understanding of these institutions by encouraging the thoughtful study
baof the connections between economic and
political freedoms, and the
cultural heritage that sustains them. Over the years the foundation gave
away approximately $370 million in pursuit of these goals.
   John Olin did not intend for his foundation to exist in perpetuity,
but rather to close its doors by the time those trustees who best
knew his philanthropic ideals had retired.   Following the death in
2000 of William E. Simon, whom Mr. Olin had chosen in 1977 to be
President of his Foundation, the Board of Trustees began to implement
a plan to phase out the Foundation over the next few years.  That
process was completed in 2005.
